During the past week, White House staffers Rob Porter and David Sorenson resigned after their ex-wives – two for Porter – alleged they were physically abused by their husbands during their failed marriages. Porter denied the accusations and Sorenson not only denied them, but he said he himself was the victim of his wife’s physical abuse … and he produced photos of his injuries.
Nevertheless, both Porter’s and Sorenson’s lives are in ruins thanks to a #metoo movement that is running amok and ruining men right and left with allegations that may or may not be true.
The #metoo movement sprung up after a number of Hollywood actresses had accused movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexually abusing them. Apparently Weinstein is akin to the movie industry as Bernie Madoff was to the investment industry. There is little doubt that Weinstein was a sexually abusing pig, but didn’t that used to be referred to as the casting couch?
The #metoo movement gained traction after actress Rose McGowan’s fire and brimstone call to arms at the Women’s Conference in Detroit last October. Her fiery speech, in which she urged women to ‘call it out’ if they’ve ever been sexually harassed, may have been fueled by cocaine because on January 20, 2017, airport police at Washington’s Dulles International Airport found several baggies of coke among some belongings she inadvertently left behind on a United Airlines plane.
Crazy Rose’s tirades have not only led to the ruination of men, but they may have led to the suicide of her former manager Jill Messick. McGowan claims that in January 1997, Weinstein performed oral sex on her in a hot tub without her consent and that she has been depressed ever since. She implied that Messick was to blame because her then manager introduced her to Weinstein. Messick’s family says Rose’s “inaccurate accusations and insinuations against Jill” helped cause Messick to take her own life.
The torrent of accusation against men shows no end. It has gotten to the point that if a man gives a woman a second look, he is sexually harassing her. And how many of these accusations are nothing but phony baloney?
Reacting to the resignations of Porter and Sorenson, President Trump has now taken on the #metoo movement. On Saturday he tweeted:
“Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation. Some are true and some are false. Some are old and some are new. There is no recovery for someone falsely accused – life and career are gone. Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?”
While men may applaud Trump’s tweet, not so with women. There has been an avalanche of social media comments coming down on Trump accusing him of disregarding the victimization of women. Hardly anyone is defending the President’s tweet. It seems clear that the feminists are finally winning their war on men.
As for Crazy Rose McGowan, when she got into that hot tub with Weinstein she had to know they were not in there to take a bath.
